Hi nova native,

I would say from a practice point of view to take each of the GMATPrep tests no more than three times. The scores would be biased on the second and third attempt, but still excellent practice.

Now as far as being able to see all the questions in the database that would need more attempts. There are around roughly 700 questions in quantitative sections of the two practice tests, and to see all of them would require you to deliberately perform at different levels during different attempts. Instead, a much better idea would be to go through all the questions tagged with GMATPrep on this forum. The only problem is that they are not separated by test1 and test2 tags, this may not necessary be an issue for you. Or you could access the segmentation by topics/subtopics/test on my site.

I hope this makes sense.

Okay, thanks for the tip.

I ended up taking GMATPrep test 1 three times and I noticed about five questions were repeats for verbal, maybe two or three for quant. In the quant section, there are only so many ways to disguise the same problem which I'm sure the test makers know about already. As for the verbal section, right answers can be memorized which could inflate the score.

Granted, I took a new Manhattan test and ended up with a stellar verbal score of 45 (never broke 40 ever, though I hit many 37's and 38's in previous tests). I will concede that I got lucky to get a 45 because a couple good guesses went my way to make it happen, but hopefully that translates on test day on Friday. The math score dropped a bit but there, I also got a bit unlucky with some question types I just don't do well on.

Is there any way I can REVIEW my correct questions other than redoing them? I actually wanted to mark some of them in bookmark but by mistake exited from the screen. The GMAC should make an index of the question with ID and time spent to be review at any point of time. I fear I have to re do quant questions for reviewing.

Does anyone know if you download QP1, the questions in the CATs change as well?

This is going to be my second attempt at the GMAT and since I have already done the 2 CATs, I do not want a skewed result.

Cheers!

@karanamin,

No, the questions in the database of the Computer adaptive tests do not change on downloading the GMATPrep question pack 1. However, if you were to repeat the practice tests you will get a different set of questions, although there would be some repeats.

Your only option is to retake the 2 CATs, there will be some overlap with your first attempt(little to none, it depends), and your scores would be somewhat biased, but I still think it is a valuable exercise to retake each of those practice tests for a total of three times. I wish GMAC would release a set of 6 full length tests, but that is unfortunately not the current reality.

The other option would be to take the three diagnostic tests that are part of the GMATFocus available from mba.com.

Thanks dabral!

I guess the key would be to practice as many official GMAC questions as possible. I hadn't done the Manhattan tests the last time, I may give those a shot once I am more prepared.

any one else finding the Quant questions on MGMAT a lot more difficult than the Quant questions in the GMATPrep CAT Exams and GMATPrep Question pack?? my Quant score jumped from low to mid 40s on MGMAT tests to a 49 on a GMATPrep exam. and not only that, but now that i am practicing with the GMATPrep Question pack, i find that i am just killing the 'hard' Quant questions.

also, i find the RC on GMAT Prep to be easier while the CR is a little more difficult. anyone else feel the same way?
